  1. Who cares! I don’t…. Create, finish the product and put it out… Let people start using it and provide feedback. No need to wait and hold off – have no fear, don’t worry, get it to market sooner rather than later.


  2. I have to agree with you OM – I used to love being a part of beta programmes. Now, nearly every service I use is in ‘Beta’ or ‘Release Candidate’ – the latest posh way of saying beta!

    I think another problem I’ve spotted is that, yes there are lots of cool services emerging, but are they really services that the mass market will want? I have a sneaky suspicion that what it is the same core group of users who are all registering for the same services, reading each others blogs etc etc
